No matter what brand you buy, make sure it has the highest amps available. More amps = more power. When working on cars, you always need that extra umphh.

? for Topfuel

Not that I'm looking for a $15 impact wrench, but Topfuel what brand was the one you destroyed?

topfuel I bought one at a garage sales and it lasted over 15 years of average use. It didn't die, I killed it. That happens when an arm of your lift sits on it when you let the car down.
It was well worth the $15 I paid for it. I recommend one for someone without a compressor.

Centerline We have a Craftsman electric impact wrench and couldn't be happier. It's strong and can withstand all kinds of abuse. I also have an air impact wrench that I use in the shop but we purchased our electric one to drive 12" lag bolts into solid logs (building a log home). It wasn't cheap but it works very well.

boss350 Well I wasn't planning on buying a cordless one. A cord is fine with me. I just have few nuts and bolts that it would be handy with. I saw a kawasaki brand and also a gm goodwrench brand. I know these are super cheapos, but like I said it would see only a few nuts/bolts and lug nuts. I'll be doing more research before I spend my hard earned money.

snap on

I have a snap on 3/8 and it is really handy! Two batterys is a must if you plan to use it alot. I also have used a milwaulkee 18 volt 1/2 inch thats great if you have alot of use for it!!

electric Impact wrench

Have any of you guys used a electric Impact wrench? What are some of the pros and cons to using one? What about the durability of a electric wrench?
I'm in the middle of a engine swap and a impact wrench would help alot in some cases, but I don't own a air compressor etc.
